A big congratulations to 5 of our full-time students who will be travelling the world for a number of auditions and world-class Summer Intensive programs.

The Paris Opera Ballet School is one of the most prestigious schools in the world; this is an incredibly rare opportunity. She is also waiting on responses from further auditions.
* Year 10 Advanced Diploma student Chloe Geary has been offered a place with the Kirov Ballet, Washington.

Here is an image of Advanced Diploma student James.
James was the only competitor at the 2019 BICD to be asked to meet with all 6 Director's who were present at the competition.
Following these offers, James will graduate from A&L this year and move to the world Famous Palucca University of Dance in Dresden!
James will continue his training at Palucca and receive a BACHELOR degree whilst training.
Receiving a place at Palucca is very competitive as it has world-class training and over a 95% success rate in placing their graduates in the best companies all over the world.
When training at such an Elite Institute as Palucca, the German government fully subsidize the dancers training meaning James will dance at Palucca at no cost for the duration of his training.
Well done James!
